A Slice of Delhi

Our group is healthy, happy, and enjoying the food though it's been much colder in Delhi than we thought it would be.  No matter, we're here for the experience of a lifetime and won't let a little chill keep us from experiencing it all (and, having packed warm clothes for another leg of the trip really helps!).

Here's a taste, in pictures, of our last few days.
En route from Hong Kong - not too bleary-eyed yet!

Not our transport!

Our transport!

Getting to know you ...

... getting to know all about you ...

Water channels serve as symbolic rivers of paradise at the tomb

The Rajghat is the site were Mahatma Gandhi was cremated on January 31, 1948

Tonight (1/5) we head by overnight train to Mcleod Ganj (above Dharamsala), the home of the Tibetan Government in Exile.  Look for another post sometime on the 6th (or as soon as we have access to reliable internet service!).  Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
